Rowdy’s Dream Blog #337: Hooked by a Fisherman

I am sitting on a rocky cliff in a canyon between two streets with my boss, C, and some other guys. C wants to hike in the bigger mountains. As we leave, my other boss, E, tells me about the blood in his stool. I beg him to try psyllium.

On our way, we stop in a split-level Walgreens so I can show my friend, R, the protein powder. She tries a sample spoonful of cream-of-wheat from a green desert dish.

We then proceed east on a path up a hill near my childhood home. Two guys are practicing fly fishing in their yard. I am hooked in the back of my black fleece jacket.

"Give me back my fishing arm!" the guy says. I unhook. Now they both have their hooks in C.

"Are you going to club him too?" I ask.

Arts

Hangin in the Alley

Not just for winos

A lot of times you can find good stuff for your house in alleys, like the cinderblocks and old door you need for a new coffee table. This Saturday, there will be even better, brand new, original accouterments for your dwelling in the alleys. Well, at least the one behind Walgreens on Central. A rogue band of artists is determined to use every available space to show art, including the nontraditional locales usually reserved for trash and broken glass. Thank you, brave creatives, for helping to transform ugliness into inspiration. “Art for everyone” will be in the thoroughfare from noon to 8 p.m.

Dan Aykroyd Will Be at Walgreens on Coors Signing Bottles of His Crystal Head Vodka at 4 P.M. on March 11

In case you didn’t know, Dan Aykroyd produces Crystal Head Vodkaa delicious brand of quadruple-distilled, triple filtered vodka packaged in a handsome skull-shaped bottle. He also has wine, if you prefer.

Mr. Aykroyd will be promoting his vodka in the flesh at Walgreens on Coors NW on Thursday, March 11 at 4:00 p.m. Which Walgreens? There are a couple... He’ll probably be at the one with the swarm of people around it.

And ghosts? Dan Aykroyd is a believer in the paranormal. Fitting that his vodka looks like a crystal skull. Also fitting that his latest theatrical venture is a live-action production of Yogi Bear, which also sounds… scary. Scary good, I mean. If you go to Walgreens, pick me up some canned nuts and tell Dan hi.
